Is “Journey 2: The Mysterious Island” Any Good?

Dumb as it is, Journey 2: The Mysterious Island (2012), starring Dwayne Johnson, is a fairly palatable family film.  Or . . . at least it would be if beautiful Vanessa Hudgens (ah, that jet black hair!) in her tank top didn’t lend the movie too much sensuality.  Luis Guzman plays her oafish father, and his affectionate attitude toward Hudgens’s character, Kailani, is thoroughly phony, unconvincing.

All the same, nifty CGI adventure scenes proliferate:  a giant lizard, a tiny elephant, etc.  It’s not as good a film as Sky High, but it has its moments.   Kids will love it.  Teenage boys, frankly, will love that tank top.
